Boat peopleThe ship stopped to give the people on the raft food and water as they waited for the Coast Guard to arrive.”They didn’t have any supplies, food, or water that we could see; no toilet, no shade, no steering system, and they were taking on water,” said Texas State Rep. Matt Schaefer R-Tyler, who was a passenger aboard the Freedom. “Everybody was thankful that we were stopping. Everybody hoped that these people would be taken care of.”Freedom arrived in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on Sunday morning, as scheduled. via | khou.com Houston
